The Department of History at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey, is pleased to announce that it will be recruiting for an academic position to be funded by the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation as of the beginning of the next academic year in September 2017, in the field of Modern Greek History within the framework of the greater Balkans and Anatolia.
The aim of this network is to provide researchers with information about publications and congresses regarding the mediterranean area in modern and contemporary history. We strive to be a collaborative space for researchers coming from different research fields. Instead of only promoting discussions about each single country, or only discussing the concept of mediterranean history, the aim is to facilitate circulation and confrontation of ideas, methods, and theories.
